Park City and Tree Utah Team up to Launch Planting Park City

Residents are invited to sign up for a new tree free of charge

Park City, Utah – Park City Municipal and Tree Utah have launched Planting Park City, a new initiative that seeks to improve the City’s urban tree canopy. The goal of the program is to add one tree per resident to the Park City landscape – totaling roughly 8,500 trees.  

“Planting healthy, drought tolerant trees in the City helps drive down our carbon footprint and enhances our quality of life,” said Park City Mayor Andy Beerman. “Thank you to our friends at Tree Utah for collaborating with us – let’s get planting!” 

The program has several types of native, drought tolerant trees available for Park City residents to plant during the autumn 2021 planting season. Participants must reside within City limits with 84060 or 84068 zip codes.

“Tree Utah is thrilled to be able to help Park City residents plant more trees into their community forest that will filter the air and provide cooling shade for generations to come.” said Executive Director of Tree Utah Amy May.

To register for a tree, residents are encouraged to sign up here to rank their tree species preference.

The program currently has 200 trees available for pick-up with the following pick-up times available (location details upon registration):

  • Wednesday, October 13, 4:00 - 6:00 p.m.
  • Sunday, October 17, 10:00 a.m.- 1:00 p.m.
  • Tuesday, October 19, 4:00 - 6:00 p.m. (rain day)
